Uh...Its about the 7/7 incident in London last year, from the viewpoint of 3 (main-characters) children, one of them a Muslim girl.

This is what I found on the BBC site:
That Summer Day

Fri 7 Jul, 4:30 pm - 5:25 pm 55mins

Drama set against the backdrop of the London bombings.

New boy Jack is excited to have moved to London in time for the Olympics but when news of the bombings breaks, he's drawn into a perilous journey across London with his new friend, Ben.

Back at school, the day's changing things for other kids too...

Well, out children don't always think it's a good idea! :rollseyes

It wasn't my idea, it was my husband's. We came back from two weeks camping in a tippee, and he said 'How about we get rid of the telly?' The rest of us thought it was a mad idea, but we gave it a try ... and found we didn't actually miss it!
Must be 4 or 5 years ago now ... I can't remember ... not watching TV must have rotted my brain! ;D

You really dont watch Telly glo!! :eek: oh wow that's something surprising to hear in this day and age ;D

My Dad also threw out the TV some time ago and my whole family thought we were mad also, and my cousins will be like "You poor guys what do you do??" and I'm like :rollseyes Hello.....you guys are the pathetic ones if you can't find anything else to do without T.V.


You dont have to have a T.V. to watch Islamic documentaries and things....just get them on DVDs etc. There will not be one advertisement!! ;)
